Sleek, slinky, snakes, and flowing lotus leaves curve up and over a central, faceted, glass, purple stone. Unique in that these graceful leaves and snakes are what hold / set the stone in place
This stone is HUGE! Beautiful amethyst purple color
Stippled and engraved designs all over include scrolls and flowers
This is truly a breathtaking, 3 dimensional brooch. Features a wide, old, C clasp
Measures approx. 3~1/4" across x 2~1/8" long x approx. 3/4" high
Weighs 1.8 oz
Very good antique condition. The snakes may have had stones in the eyes...Brass has a lovely patina now, properly functioning clasp. Altogether a terrific piece!
